    Elrick platinum classic 6 , thru-neck, top:burled maple, body:swamp ash, neck:wenge, fretboard:wenge, Elrick gigbag included.

    I bought this bass a little while ago and while I absolutely love the beast of a bass it is I realize I am not a 6 string player, plus the 35" scale is beyond my stretching abilities...;)
    I got this bass from the second owner, it is absolutely mint.

    Here are the specs from Elrick.com
    35" scale 5, 6, 7-string
    24 frets + zero fret
    swamp ash or alder body
    figured wood top
    hand rubbed oil finish
    quarter-sawn maple or quarter-sawn wenge neck
    bubinga or wenge fretboard
    2-way adjustable truss rod
    Bartolini J-coil pickups
    Bartolini 3-band prieamp with 3-way mid and active bypass
    fully shielded control cavity
    Black Hipshot Ultra-light tuners
    Black Hipshot A-style bridge
    Dunlop Straploks
    Elrick Fundamental strings

    I am new to selling in TB but I have been buying for a while now, check my feedback. You can also check my ebay feedback, pablopsaxophones.

    My asking price is $2400 paypal + shipped included in the US, no international buyers. This bass has a pricelist of $5,300.00 at Elrick.com, the previous owner bought it for $3,500.00 so I think $2,400 is a super deal for the next owner.

    more pics available upon request: email me at pablo_piriz@mac.com

    As far as trades I could entertain the right offer, I am mostly looking to get a Rickenbacker, not the newer ones though, 1990 or earlier plus some $$ to make up for the difference. All rickenbacker offers need to be bass + cash
    I would also like an MTD 5 USA, or an ELRICK 5, with the right bass this would be an even trade.
    I am getting used to the 35" by now....

    I bought it from him, I am torn between selling or not selling...if it was a fiver I would be keeping it for sure,....but I am not much of six string player...and I have been GASing for a Rick for a loooong time...it suits me better

    that video blew me out of the water, tone, soul, what else...
    I am toying with keeping it if I don't get the right offer.

    On the elrick side I would consider a 5 string neck through only.
    I got a few interesting trade offers but still waiting for the $$ offers...I am leaning towards keeping it, posted this bass at a killer price, what's up people?
    My problem now is that I have been playing this bass non stop, getting used to 35" and loving the bass....I will post my Stingray and see who sells first I guess...

    2400 Shipped and you take Paypal......man oh man
     
  13. I have a single cut Platinum NT SC posted here on TB that I would consider a trade for but I would want some equalizing cash. Is your bass in fact an NT or a set neck? It look to be an early one. Do you know the year of make? Thanks.

    Its a neck through, i will only entertain cash offers for the time being. I figured if i am not doing a straight up sale there is no other bass i would want... it took four days of non stop playing and a bunch of new songs to realiza that. :D
